We talk about harm, entitlement as relates to positions of power like
masculinity or whiteness in our cultures, the need for connection ingrained into our biology and sociality, accountability and healing
among other topics.
Next weekend is the Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfair (or ACAB)
happening in Asheville, NC. Events start on Friday with a welcome table
at Firestorm from 1-7pm. Simultaneously, there’ll be presentations on
Veganism and non-violent direct action, trans-national and indigenous
poetry, anti-racism in Appalacha, Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement
and anarchism in Puerto Rico. That night, Pansy Fest begins with a show
at Sly Grog Lounge at 7pm. This sparks a weekend of activities from 11am
til 2am around the city. If you want to learn more about either event,
check out acab2019.noblogs.org and pansycollective.org
or give a re-listen to our August 4th episode of The Final Straw. And
please come visit our table if you’re in town on Saturday or Sunday and
